    How did they do this?

    I see the spill in that video - it is still a fantastic effect. Soooo, software to tailor the image to the rough shape of the outfit?

    How did they do this?

    It's an LED dress. Patterns and lights are inside the dress and there's a wireless controller for the images/shapes.Similar to:Closeup of the dress: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iyoDs3YSsMPurple bars in the back are an LED screen. You can see the array gaps when the effect changes...

    Microphones Too Close To Sound Good?

    ^^^ This is the simplest solution if you don't have time to fiddle around. If the two individuals are face to face, easiest thing to do is lower the mic on the shorter actor as she/he would be looking up at the taller person, and the taller person's mouth won't be talking directly into the...

    LED Stage Markers

    Not to jack the thread, but expand upon the EL wire.How do you use it in your space? I was searching around their website and got the idea of a channel routed out in the stage floor where the wire could lay. Does it lay straight easily? I figure if I went this route, some kind of clear...

    Wireless Purchase info for Antenna Distro for Shure SLX4 J3/H5 (12 receivers)

    Education in the Audio Field

    Another place to look is in the Mass Comm. department of schools if they aren't big enough to offer a dedicated theater program or an audio engineering program. They generally house the audio production, engineering, and broadcast aspects that you might be interested in. If you choose that, you...

    Wireless Sennheiser Wall Worts: Linear or Switching?

    We ran 20 ew100 G3's with the power supplies all patched into power distro in the same rack before switching to NT/ASA1's. If you ever have a problem with the power adapters, you can always switch to Sennheiser NT/ASA1 power supplies/antenna distro. The ASA's are 1/2 racks and can supply power...
